And for you, a free story from me! This was originally a freebie on DSP's site for Halloween It's from my series on 1930's demon hunters and is m/m/m. While it is a stand alone it can be considered a sequel to my novella The Darkest Midnight in December ( blurb and purchase info here) and my short story Snowbound in Dreamspinner's anthology Necking ( blurb and purchase info here)

A Brief Respite )

Ah, wish I had time right now to construct a website so this could be a PDF download for you all.

The sale is going on all week (and more sales to come all month). And it occurred to me after I posted last night that I forgot to actually include a link to my stuff (brilliant!) So you can find my stuff here. and just go to the home page to see all the authors on sale! Cool stuff!

And since the authors participating in Rainbow Snippets have been so supportive of my Nano WIP Behind Blue Eyes (working title) that I thought I'd share the unedited opening to the novel. Let me know what you think.

Chuck Wendig asked us to share 1,000 words of our nano novel. Sounds like fun. For me this is in chapter three. A quick orientation, Dr. Aneurin Shyroth has just been given a Toy for his 30th birthday by his wealthy friends (he is also equally wealthy). They believe that the Toys are trained courtesans if you will who trade room and bored in some of the finest homes in the galaxy for being exactly what you want in the bedroom. Aneurin hates the very idea but is pretty much stuck with this. Kaleo is the Toy and his participation in this is anything but voluntary. The Toymakers have been trawling the poor segments of society and the prison slums for young people with no one to miss them or complain if they disappear.

And if you like that you can find chapter one here.

As I close in on my last 5K of the novel (which honestly will only take me to half way thru this beast) I thought I'd share my first chapter and see what you think. It's SF. I'd be interested in what you think (keeping in mind of course this is raw nano stuff. I'll be happy if you can read without wincing). It's a hair over 1000 words

I took part in the What Happened in Vegas blogathon to celebrate the SCOTUS gay marriage decision. It also has the charity I chose to highlight for this. J. P. Barnaby is hosting my story!

You take two geeks, a Star Trek themed wedding and Las Vegas and you get my story Boldly Go.

It's a sweet/no sex story if that matters. And thanks to [livejournal.com profile] evil_little_dog, [livejournal.com profile] kiramaru7 and [livejournal.com profile] 0_mother_0 for the beta!

Terrible Minds challenged us to get all nasty and naughty in response to that ridiculous censorship app that replaces swears and naughty bits with...well I have no idea, some kind of gentle less suggestion bullshit apparently.

I thought that would be perfect time to share a little bit of one of my WIP's that is only going by the file name Behind Blue Eyes because I have yet to come up with a decent title. It's Sci-Fi and a little background on it, we have Aneurin, wealthy man and overly intelligent, insanely hard working geneticist who was gifted a Toy for his birthday. he and his wealthy friends thought the Toys were willing courtesans that functioned as live-in, wish-fullfilling lovers. Aneurin quickly found out how wrong that was.

Kaleo was raised in a prison slum, his only crime was being born there. He's a human/alien hybrid who got lured in by the promise of citizenship. Instead he was forced into sexual slavery, his body altered to be in a permanently hyperaroused state (that's the medications he's referring to in this. They help to suppress that). Aneurin was as good as his word. He didn't want to force Kaleo into anything but Kaleo does fall for him and this is a scene from when they're just beginning to figure out what each other likes in bed. Enjoy. (oh and this is a rough draft>


Kaleo & Aneurin )

I have them (and I can't believe I just used that as a title since I hate that statement). But it is true. I'm trying to figure out how I feel about getting back the rights of Mysterious Spirit. It's going OOP in a month, so to speak.

I can't believe it's been that long already that the rights are reverting back to me. It's the first story I sold to Dreamspinner press (which isn't even doing stand alone shorts any more). I never made much money on it and about the only review was a pitiful 2 star, no text review but I still like that story a lot.

It's fantasy with a mild bondage/collar me theme.

I'm also a little sad that the option to buy it won't be there any more. On the other hand, I suppose I could submit it to the rare place that allows reprints. More likely, I'll put it up for free when I get my website built.

If you ever wanted to buy Lochan and Deveran's story, you have a month. Or you could wait on me to put it up.

Sad a little but happy to have the boys coming home to me.

When I saw the prompt of "Earthquakes" for the challenge at Brynn Stein’s blog, this insisted on being written. Just FYI it's based in the Prose and Poetic Eddas, not Marvel Comics. If you're unfamiliar with the story click here (or click just to see the cool art).

This drabble gone wild was written yesterday for Layla Wier’s blog and the Friday Free write. The picture I saw was just pitch blackness and 3 paper lanterns. I forgot to save it. I tried to find it but garden party was too broad a search and knowing it was from Germany and got a gay German garden party. Um...not what I was looking for (but somehow appropriate for this story). This is in my Vampires in Vegas series.

Brynn Stein had a challenge up (remember her, she was here guest blogging last week) and I planned a little 200 word answer or something and 700 words later here we are. Find the challenge here.

I also worked in a challenge from another friend who challenge me to use the theme 'Don't fade away'

So here's the combined challenge story
